If you were to open your own theme restaurant, what would the theme be and how would you express it to the customers?


I'd open a gruel restaurant! The menu would list various types of gruel, porridge (such as pease porridge, available hot or cold, though not actually nine days old), oatmeal, polenta, bread pudding, cereal, etc. The customers would sit on rough-hewn wooden benches at rough-hewn wooden tables, and eat out of rough-hewn wooden bowls with rough-hewn wooden spoons. The waiters would be dressed like that guy from "Oliver Twist" who says, "MORE?!?"

Ooo, or how about a comfort-food restaurant? There'd be peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, tomato soup, doughnuts, Cheetos, cereal, stuff like that. And big-screen TVs showing cartoons.

You could call the place Gruel and Unusual Punishment.

Oh, your plants and zombies just shipped! Remember, don't eat the plants, and don't let the zombies eat them either.

I've always pondered making a grilled cheese sandwich shop. Different types of bread (rye, sourdough, French), cheese (cheddar, jack, mozzarella, brie, feta), have different additions (beef & tomato, onion, bacon, basil). There's a place in Jersey that is famous for their grilled cheese, so it's not totally far fetched...

My favourite thing to order at Panera Bread is a grilled cheddar on sourdough with their tomato soup to dip it in.

Catch is, I just found out that they're bad about trans fats in their food. *sadfox*
